Network playlist WDTV


Standard Member
I seem to be having some trouble getting a playlist to work over the network. I am not sure if the format of my m3u files are not correct or if my path is wrong.

I am using the WDLXTV fw. It is my understanding that it only needs one line per song/movie. This is how mine looks:


Now on my server in the upnp section I have this setup as my share /mnt/Media/Music/. So when I open the music files section in WDTV I see UPNP. I click on it and I see Music folder. Inside the music folder is test.mp3. Should the m3u file read more like this /mnt/Media/Music/test.mp3?

When I log into the WDTV via telnet I can get to /tmp/media/usb/uPnP and list its contents. It shows a folder called "media1: 1". I for the life of me cannot get into this folder. I know this folder is my NAS.

Any ideas how to mount the folder? I am not sure why it has the ": 1" at the end. The UPnP for my server is called media1. The folder path on my server is /mnt/Media/Music/.

Would really appreciate some input on this. If this has been answered already please point me in the right direction.
